Hope someone can help with this
On the e28 the central locking is dead and the interior lights dont work
Other day i changed the CL control unit and it made no difference so thats 3 different ones that dont work so im thinking maybe thats not the problem
The old guy that had the motor from 1990 till it went off the road in 2005 kept a journal type thing about the maintenance and a bit of it relates to the electrics
Heres what it says " Electrical fault developed. RH side and tail light fuse blows when switched on " their ok now. then it says " Also fuse 5 permanent earth on feed side. All faulty circuits by passed except for central locking ( cant find control box ) and inside lights which will be done later "
Im not too hot with the electrics but does anyone know what he means by the fuse 5 permanent earth on feed side?
The central locking, interior lights and clock are connected to that fuse 5. The clock works fine and i think thats because the key has to be at 1 for it to work and the CL and INT LIGHTS need to work with no key so thats what hes on about with the permanent feed
Am i on the right track here guys with this?
Hope ive explained what i mean okay like
